It's just too bad that my employer frowns on single malt during work hours.

What about natural plant-based mood enhancers? ;-)

I'm afraid that such "enhancement" would only make the work day seem to stretch out beyond tolerable limits. I'll have to hope the boys can provide some "sweet songs to rock my soul". Pretty sure that will do the trick.

Which leads to the next logical question:

Are there eny openings?





NOTE:
I realize that posing such a question only leaves the door open for the less mature of us to start an onslaught of loosley disguised homophobic innuendo. People, please prove me wrong.

Do you have any experience in underwater acoustics?

Not me, but my step-son has been through US Army scuba school down in Key West. Maybe not the exact same field, but if you need anything blown up underwater covertly, he's your man.

Mando-
A few years ago my parents and their old college roommates (in their mid 70s) went on a tour of Scotland with the only purpose being visiting as many single malt distilleries as possible. They may have attempted to reclaim their Cawdor birthright too after a few days but that would be another story. My mom recently went back to attend a cousin's graduation and while there went to Jura to sample more.

The takeaway was that they could get VAABC to order ANYTHING that they found there for less than what they could buy it for over there. They still came back with a few interesting samples. It got me interested to a degree. After doing some "research" I tried something very interesting. If I dripped even a small droplet of water into the dram (smaller than from an eyedropper) it would expand the flavor in a way that I could not believe. I am not a connoisseur, but it was an enjoyable experience. Like with some other drops it is amazing what a few molecules will do.

I will always have some water handy when trying new malts, but I will almost always start neat and do a head to head with a few drops.

Some malts definitely bloom and open up when you add water, others just don't change much. The voyage of discovery is half the fun.
